#8 in the Coffeehouse Mystery series: There's nothing cozier than a winter evening in Greenwich Village. Streetlights shimmer through icy flakes, cafés glow with welcoming warmth, and a layer of snow dusts historic townhouses like powdered sugar on holiday confections. Murder has no place in such a pretty picture, until now...

Coffeehouse manager Clare Cosi has grown very fond of Alfred Glockner, the part-time comic and genuinely jolly charity Santa who's been using her Village Blend as a place to warm his mittens. When she finds him brutally gunned down in a nearby alley, a few subtle clues convince her that Alfred's death was something more than the tragic result of a random mugging--the conclusion of the police. With Clare's boyfriend, NYPD Detective Mike Quinn, distracted by a cold case of his own, and ex-husband Matt investigating this year's holiday lingerie catalogs (an annual event), Clare charges ahead solo to solve her beloved Santa's slaying. Then someone tries to ice Clare, and she really gets steamed. But she'd better watch out, because if she fails to stop this stone cold killer, she may just get the biggest chill of her life.

My Review: This was another fun read in the series. I really like Clare Cosi, she is curious and when murder happens she has to find out the truth. All the secondary characters are fun to read about, too. I'll have to go to the library and get the next books in this series.

Thanks, trying to get most of them in order, before I start reading.

A wish list tag. I liked this book, mostly just had to do with Clare. Joy, Matt and Mike played minor roles as she investigated the death of her friend, a travelling Santa.

Book arrived today. Espresso Shot is the next one up for me to read in this series. So hopefully, this one isn't too far behind. Thanks for tagging me,T02S03B11D20.

Well, it took a little longer than I wanted to get around to reading this (too many books, not enough time). It also took me twice as long as it should have once I started mainly because it's birthday month and the holidays-just too much going on. On a little different note, it is always fun to read a holiday book during the holidays. I didn't figure out "who done it" until near the end but probably because I have had a hard time focusing on this book-way too many distractions. I always enjoy this coffee house series though. I will be passing this book to my sister.

Thanks, all, for passing this along. Safely in Salt Lake City, I doubt it will take long for this one to push it’s way to the front of the tent line😉

And it didn’t take long 😉 Having just arrived, being in my mind and on the surface, I quickly read this light little mystery during tech rehearsals for “Curtains.” And aside from Santa, it was fun.

So then I took it to the library to copy a couple of recipes that look like they really might be fun to try,. I was going to release it into one of the little free library‘s nearby, but then I found it was on the wish list of one of the members of Oppem’s Birthday group.... so I’m now going to pack it up, and send it off 😊

HAPPY BELATED BIRTHDAY!!!

A nice and cozy novel, the type of story I like to read after a long novel or a dark novel. I like the entertainment it provides and that the main character is an owner of a coffeehouse. Every time I read a novel in this series, I want to drink coffee and eat either chocolate or biscotti! Though it may seem simple, I like the little twists and turns in the story, and how it all unravels. It’s a great series to read.
